(KSDK Sports) -- It was thought to be common knowledge that Mizzou junior Phil Pressey would forgo his senior season at Mizzou and enter the NBA draft.
That may not be the case.
Sources have told Frank Cusumano that Pressey is still weighing his options and that he very well may return for his senior season. Pressey loves the relationship he has with his teammates and may not be ready to leave that behind.
Two month ago he was determined to leave for greener pastures, however, he now thinks staying for one more year could help him grow as a player and elevate his draft status.
Pressey had a very polarizing year this past season, one minute he was making a great play, the next he was making fans shake their heads.
The preseason All-American averaged 11.9 points and 7.1 assists per game last season.
